soul... love... and the goodness in the little things in life

Hey there!  Thanks so much for being here!  I am a lover of life, and I am happiest when adventuring with my husband and two wild ones (5 and 7 year old daughters) in the every day and far away.  If you'd like to know more about us, check out some of our personal craziness here!   I love sharing stories and laughing with friends and family, breathing in the outside air on a sunny day, riding my bike, fighting dragons as super heroes with my kids, and pretty much anything the color orange.  And dancing!  I really dig dancing.  I get overwhelmed by life sometimes - the beauty in the little things, the goodness of people, the bad and sad parts, and all the love.  And that's why I do what I do!  I love documenting real and good moments in life.  I laugh, smile, and even tear up a little while shooting and then again while editing.  I always say that I have two kinds of clients: friends who become clients (and stay friends) and clients who become friends.  

I studied photography at The Ohio State University and have a Masters in Art Education.  I taught Art for Columbus Schools for six years, then made this business into something full time and soul-fulfilling.  I have been photographing professionally here in Columbus, Ohio for seven years.  I have photographed weddings in Guatemala, Florida, Saint Lucia, Chicago, and all around the Midwest.  For my own wedding, I was young and had the one photographer in the small town where my wedding took place.  The images of my wedding are all posed and don't at all reflect the joy and fun of our day!  That is a major regret of mine, and I am so passionate about helping couples find the right photographer for their wedding.  I LOVE getting to know couples and families, and I especially enjoy photographing a client's wedding and then having the honor and privilege to continue documenting their family as it grows.  I love playing and laughing with kids during a family session and watching the way all those in the family interact.  

I would love to chat or meet up with you about documenting your memories!

 

My favorite hair is purple and red and pixie cut, but I just don't have it in me to keep that up, so you'll generally see me in some stage of growing it out.  And those sunglasses - they are a reminder to seek out the good and put love into the world!  And that guy biting my head - he's my husband.  I love that guy.

These two are my wild ones.  They're amazing.  And also maybe a little frightening/annoying sometimes.  But overall: WONDERFUL.  I love them.
